I haven’t started
my period yet

#firstperiod

Don’t worry. The average age for a girl to start her period is 13. But in reality, it is common for girls to start anywhere between the ages of 8 and 18.
As there’s no way of predicting when it'll start, it’s a good idea to keep some pads in your bag when you’re out and about. Lil-Lets Teens day pads are nice and slim and come in discreet packaging so no one will know you've got any in your bag.

what happens
when it
does arrive?

#firstperiod

When it does arrive for the first time, for some girls they notice either a tiny bit of blood in their underwear or on some toilet paper. Although it may be an awkward conversation, you need to have the chat with your nearest and dearest (like your mum or sister) so they make sure you have products for this period and the next one.

There is s good chance your period will come soon as most of your body has already started to develop but remember your period can c9me at anytime so dont worry if it doesn't come soon x

Hey can someone predict when I may get my period as I have been having egg white discharge for 2 years and most days it soaks through my pants, I am very moody for no reason and my boobs have been developing slowly for 1/1.5 year maybe. I have dark hair down there and some is curly I have no acne but that's cos I take care of my skin and my armpit hair is light I am 14 years old and I started puberty 2.5 years ago xxx

You guys are lucky, be grateful and enjoy your life while you still can.

don't worry you are actually lucky you have not had it yet. they suck! you won't have to deal with the bleeding and the embarrassing feeling when you drop a pad or tampon in front of a boy. i'm 12 and have had it for almost 2 years! if you still have not had it, just wait and see. it feels great to have it ,but it makes me feel terrible!

to scared

By the sounds of things it could be any time now. If you aren't already wearing a panty liners for the discharge now would be a great time to start wearing them, plus your first period will probably be light so a liner would be ok. I started just after turning 11 and started getting discharge around 10.5 and mum got me panty liners and I was about as developed as you are when mine started. Xx

I'm 9 and I have only just started puberty so no period yet but my mum hasent talked to me about things yet and I'm super shy to ask her. I have some longish hair along the line part down there and I will soon need to start wearing a bra so wood love to get some pads so I can be ready. I want her to ask me or start talking to me about puberty but I don't know how.
